It’s Tax Day! Procrastinators, you can e-File Returns for Free!

Here’s my “Catnip Tidbit” for April 15th:

For those who don’t e-file because you hate paying those processing fees, rejoice! There are ways you can file your return electronically for free.  “Download & install” versions of tax software like TurboTax, usually offers to e-file your Federal returns for free (The “Online” version charges for both Fed & State e-filing). offers free e-filing from their website (Wow, the IRS not charging for a change), and many states like California have changed to now allow free e-filing. To find out if your State has free e-filing, go to your State’s official web site.  And if you don’t know where to find it, just walk to your car and look at the license plate–States now have their website printed on the plates!
